Presentation: Tweet"Devops Fools, Tools and other smart things"
Now that devops has some traction , tools vendors are happy to re-brand their 'old' tools into 'devops' tools, piggy backing on the new buzzword. We know better, no tool is going to help against bad organization, people thinking in silos or plain stupidity. Still, lots of people get attracted to devops because they came across a new cool tool. Very similar to how testing and unit testing gets them into Test Driven Development. So tools clearly have their place in the eco-system. Devops is largely about changing the culture, but because culture is hard to change it's best to start with behavior, which in itself again can be influenced by introducing new tools. New tools might cause the necessary stir to rethink what people are doing and how they do it.
This session draws heavily on experiences in a recent mission where tools like chef, vagrant, jenkins, fog, amazon where added in the usual tool mix and how it changed workingship relations between devs and ops.
In the talk, the tools are highlighted because of the behavioral and cultural changes then can cause. It does not make devops fool proof or proof for devops fools.
